's something that we in the inner city in brooklyn and harlem, southeast washington, d.c., south central los angeles have been dealing with and it's become all too familiar. this summer in new york city was a summer of great violence. as you know, you helped to shine the spot light on some of the things that were taking place in new york. the problem now is one that i think can no longer be ignored by the congress. and the newtown tragedy has made a claim that it's no longer possible and should no longer be possible for the second amendment to shield the go government's ability to enablgt sensible gun safety measures. for too long, the second amendment has been used as such a shield. it protects responsible gun ownership, but it cannot protect the ability of people to possess high capacity ammunition clips, assault weapons, that can unleash mayhem on a community, on a school, on a neighborhood in a matter of moments. and i think there is going to be a moment in the early part of the congress, the democratic caucus, under the leadership of nancy pelosi has led to it. and i begin to see cracks

it would go the way of newsweek. and david moranist of the washington post, this is like lincoln at gettysburg, what would they operate on. >> i think it's a failure of the part of imagination on time magazine, if we can't come up with anyone other than the guy who won the election. >> was it a cop-out? >> i think in their minds he is the perennial person of the day, bern of the hour, person of year. >> and i think president morsi, and taken over and it really has become the narrative of the entire world. the arab spring, i call it the islamicic awakinawaking. >> rick, aren't you going to hold president obama responsible for that? >> give him credit-- >> so who should we expect next year? or is it too early to talk about. >> i think it's too early to start talking about hillary clinton. i think we're going to have to wait an um can of years, what do you say. >> i'm going to go with president obama? >> we'll have to see whether she actually testifies in front of the committee while she is still secretary of state as the senators seem to request. stay with us, we have more news wat
if we're going to see that sense of brotherhood or sisterhood any time soon in washington. i'm still convinced they are not going to come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff unless compelled to do so by an adverse external event like a sharply lower equity market. lou: and is, you know, i can't imagine a market ever going down as john is suggesting here simply because a government chooses not to function. >> well, if it means we're headed into recession, the markets will react. in a typical bear market, stocks sell off by 20%. it's great to have a compromise before the year end, but time is running out. it's not possible. lou: how is it that a treasury secretary responsible for the integrity of the markets, the currency, responsible, indeed, for the financial system of this country, largely, broadly, and internationally, would sink to the level of a political operative making statements about we're going over the fiscal cliff and we're ready to go. >> the president put him in charge of the negotiations from his point of view. lou: clever. >> he's wearing two hats at this point in tim
over her comments on the benghazi attack. peter doocy is following this story from washington and there are so many angles to this one. good morning, peter. >> there are. ambassador susan rice was never actually nominated for the job of secretary of state but based on statements president obama made in public hefz believed to be a frontrunner for his nomination. she thinks a potential confirmation process would have been lengthy and disruptive so she says she is out. >> i withdrew my name because i think it's the right thing for the country. i think it's the right thing for the president and putting those things together that makes it the right thing for me and my family. >> president obama said while i deeply regret the unfair attacks on susan rice in recent weeks the position demonstrates strength of her character and admirable commitment to rise above the politics at the moment to put our national interests fist. the american people can be proud to have a public servant of her caliber and character representing our country. republican senator lindsay graham says he respects
and the pressure that is alied in washington. what is your reaction? >> these are good people, smart people, intelligent. but you really have to look at how rare motivated differently than smallbusinesses would be. these large businesses can be the subject of government actions. it's easy to kind of select them, move them out. they can be subject to attack. they also are sometimes subsidized. i have to worry about subsidies, and that may have government contracts. small businesses aren't concerned with those things. small-buness can make a much better case to the president as to what needs to be done in this economy to create jobs. what would it take for small businesses, businessman women to create jobs and grow the economy? he just is to ask. i think he would get a very consistent answer. he does need to keep talking to the same high-level executives that he has been talking to. tony's to get down into levels and talk to small businessmen women lou: let's you and i get to some brass tacks. we are talking about raising the top rate. we're being dragged along. talking about almost 40 percen
